    It’s one of my favorite restaurants. The table next to us had a family with a screaming child most of the evening, which has never happened there before. Typically you’d expect the parent would take their child out until they calm down; this did not occur. It was hard to converse with our friends.

    Food and service were very good, waterfront dining was great. Did not feel rushed and enjoyed celebrating our anniversary here. They did not recognize our anniversary until desert. I feel at a higher end restaurant that should be recognized from the minute you walk in the door.

    Unfortunately, it was quite cold in there and they informed us that the heater went out recently. They had a space heater next to one table adjacent to us and said they could not add another for our table. There was also a bad aroma in the women’s restroom and it was lunchtime when they just opened so I’m not sure what the cause was. On the plus side my I had tuna, appetizer and oysters. Rockefeller were great as usual. I haven’t been there in a while and the food was still very good and the views were very pretty just a little off this time I guess.

    When we arrived, valet was great. Once we entered the restaurant it took a while to be addressed. Once the hostess saw us we were seated immediately. A male waiter filled our water glasses quickly. The waitress came over and took our drink and appetizer order. We ordered the Burrata. It was okay. It would be great if they added a touch more balsamic to give the tomato coulis more flavor. The thin crouton was great. The waitress was not very attentive. We finished the appetizer and drink before she came back to check on us. She finally asked for our order but didn’t ask how I wanted my eggs cooked. The food came out fast. We both ordered the short rib and eggs. The short rib was extremely tender however, it was very bland. The blu cheese on top of the short rib was very overpowering. A manager named Angela noticed that we didn’t finish our food. She was very nice. She offered to fix the eggs. We were at the table so long prior to her coming over that I no longer wanted anything else. If you are new to Tampa, this place would impress you with the view however, there are other restaurants nearby with great views. We won’t return because in Tampa, you only get one chance to impress due to the plethora of other choices. The Oyster Catcher did NOT impress.

    This has been a long time favorite "special occasion" restaurant. Admittedly they could have had an off night- but everything was off. The staff were not friendly and smiling, we rarely saw our waiter..Lobster was overcooked, bisque was overpowered by truffle oil. We stopped at bar first for drinks and it was a good 10 minutes before anyone even acknowledged us and if you've been here you know its really hard to do that with only about 10 - 12 barstools. I would have been disappointed if we paid $50 for the meal/experience but at $300, unfriendly, unattentivw staff and sub par meal it was beyond disappointing. The highlight of the experience was the valet attendant who was engaging and the bread. Will be hard pressed to give them another try

    We were very excited to celebrate our 42 years anniversary, as we had mentioned when making the reservation but from the hostess to the waiter no one acknowledged or made any effort to make it special! The hostess let us wait 10 minutes before seating us with NO explanation especially since the restaurant was not busy and only 2 tables were occupied. We were disappointed with the food as well. The yellow tail fish presentation was definitely not appetizing as it came whole with head eyes teeth !!!!! We had to send it back . The gnocchi were overdrawn with a very thick white sauce with not too much taste. Even the valet attendant was not helpful assisting my disabled husband as he was struggling to place his equipment into the car and just stood there without even offering or attempt any way to assist! Wow, not the kind of service you would expect from this establishment. Extremely disappointed.

    We were quite disappointed in the food for the price. It was our anniversary which we had identified in our reservation but there was no mention or congratulations. We ordered Oysters Rockefeller and it was delicious @$4.50 per oyster. We then ordered a 14oz New York Strip and lobster surf and turf to share @ $85. The steak was flavorless and about a third of it uneatable due to gristle. There was no accompaniment so we ordered Brussel sprouts for an additional charge. Martinis were small. We never mind paying for an amazing meal. This was not amazing.

    Poor service - waiters not attentive. Food served cold. Lobster bisque as a starter and a side portion of vegetables. When side was replaced what kitchen did was to add more cooking time to side and the returned portion was over cooked and it was returned when main was almost eaten.

    We were 4 celebrating New Year. Everything was good except Dry aged Sirloin on Surf and turf dish. We ordered 2 of its with medium rare. One was for my husband and one was for my friend. The meat were not fresh, tough and rare. We are really not sure if the chef known how to do steak with perfect temperature. It looked like boiled meat and put them over the grills for little bit. It’s kind of disappointing because we invited him and his wife to the restaurant. Again, everything was good except these.

    We came for New Year’s Eve, and ate early, at 6:15. Our reservations were for 7pm and they were able to accommodate us early. However, we were seated in the corner of the room, up against the window, looking at the pool. Not a beautiful dining room at all. A very casual room. The cushions for the pool chairs were stacked up right behind us on the shelf, and we asked them to be moved. Overall, for New Year’s Eve, seated in a corner of Oystercatchers, by a pool and cushions, is not the ambience that we were looking for. Very disappointing. Food was mostly good. The red snapper was a bit overcooked/crispy, though. Service was great.

    This was once a really nice place to go. Sadly it is a mere shell of itself these days. If not for our great server I would have given everything a 1/2 star. Arrived and stood there for four minutes at the checkin before anyone even acknowledged us. Tables are shoved so close together you are practically part of everyone’s conversation to the left and right. Place was not clean. Dining room chandeliers were filthy. Water guy spilled water all over the table every time water was refilled. From a food perspective it was bizarre. Classic Buratta salad was presented to us with a giant ball of mozzarella swimming in a tomato purée. Really strange. Just seemed as if the chef was trying too hard to be different. The result was a mashed up strange spin on classic dishes.

    Food was good. Server very nice and knowledgeable. Lobster tails were a little overdone but not enough to send back. Non alcoholic beverages were removed when finished and not refilled or replaced. Kind of unusual. Views were awesome of the sunset which is why we picked the time of day for the reservation. Party of 8 for $750 with only three alcoholic beverages is a bit steep and while it was good, it wasn't $750 good, in my opinion. Mileage may vary.

    Food and service were great. However, on the coldest Christmas in 30 years there was no heat. But worse than this, no one informed us of this until sitting shivering, hands cold, seeing staff wearing jackets that we had to ask. As an expensive, somewhat over priced, limited meal was being served, this info should have been shared by the valet, hostess, waiter, staff before we were seated.
